I am starting to seriously look into pocket carry, so I have to ask what kind of jeans do you wear? The wranglers I have can barely conceal a snubbie.

I have four main pairs of jeans that I wear for carrying. Two pairs of Red Camel jeans (from the Fashion Denim line), a pair of Yaso, and a pair of fashion jeans that were at TJ Maxx called "Premium" brand jeans. The two Red Camels have the deepest pockets, followed by the "Premium" brand, and the Yaso has the shallowest; however, the Yaso is still easily able to hold my dad's Bersa Thunder 380 with ease.

G36 is MUCH lighter and slimmer than the 30SF.

Be aware that there are some issues with mag interchangeability with the G30/G30SF. The original G30SF had an ambi mag release, thus a different mag than the G30. I don't think it can use the G30 mag or vice-versa. Might reflect on availability of spare mags. I forget the details, worth checking out.

I just noticed that in another thread you posted a picture of a G36 with a serial number of the same run as the one I'm thinking about putting on layaway. The one I'm looking at is in the PTUxxx range of serials just as yours is; has your gun been reliable? I figure that if yours has been reliable and your serial being so close to the one I'm looking at that it would give me an idea of how reliable that serial series run of guns was. Thanks!

Knowing my luck, I'd get a lemon!
I think I might trust my gut on this one and go with the G30SF, nothing good has ever come from me disregarding my gut!
From what I can gather it was that you can't use a G30/G21 mag in a G30SF if you have reversed the mag release, in which case it will only accept the 30SF and 21SF ambi cut mags.

The g36 is the firearm I carry most often. It is soft shooting, accurate and reliable. I don't worry about 7 rounds being enough...besides, carrying an extra mag is simple enough.
Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!
